EU Commission: Italy Has Highest Long-Term Sustainability in the EU

We’ve been saying it for a long time: Italy’s economy is one of the most resilient ones in the EU. It may not have the best performance but it has high robustness. Performance is one thing, robustness and sustainability are another.

Today, it is the EU Commission to confirm that in the long run, Italy has the best Sustainability Index (see above figure ) – see the EU Commission’s Fiscal Sustainability Report 2012 from which the above graph is taken.

This seems paradoxical, to say the least. Italy, a G8 economy, with a manufacturing industry that is second only to that of Germany, has been bombarded by rating agencies, attacked by speculators and often indicted as the weakest link of the Eurozone.Why?

Established originally in 2005 in the USA, Ontonix is a technology company headquartered in Como, Italy. The unusual technology and solutions developed by Ontonix focus on countering what most threatens safety, advanced products, critical infrastructures, or IT network security - the rapid growth of complexity. In 2007 the company received recognition by being selected as Gartner's Cool Vendor. What makes Ontonix different from all those companies and research centers who claim to manage complexity is that we have a complexity metric. This means that we MEASURE complexity. We detect anomalies in complex defense systems without using Machine Learning for one very good reason: our clients don’t have the luxury of multiple examples of failures necessary to teach software to recognize them. We identify anomalies without having seen them before. Sometimes, you must get it right the first and only time!
